SecondaryHB Unconference

SecondaryHB held its first unconference today at Napier Boys' High School. Although we had a small contingent, as Fiona said, "the people who show up are the people who are supposed to be there."  Although catering forgot about us (darn holidays!), we ended up with a nice group who at least had cake and coffee!

We discussed far more opportunities for learning than were scheduled to present. That is the beauty of an unconference - you can take the discussion anywhere, because no one is expecting just "this thing I'm here to talk about." We even had a presentation from NBHS's newest staff member, who doesn't even start until Monday! And we were in awe (and envy) of Iona's 1-1 BYOD.

Here is our preso, and our collaborative notes, which include a wealth of teaching and learning options.

Thanks to everyone who attended today. We have already had interest from other schools in doing it again in Term 1, 2015.

You will find SecondaryHB here. Sign up to the mailing list and be the first to know the date/time of the next unconference!
